To think the Democrats are hoping to turn Texas seems a bit far fetched. More propaganda from DWS.
It’s a good start. Thanks, Texans!

TX has learned well from Israel.
Let me tell you what one of the best result of this bill will be.
Some whacko super-lefty-teachers will resign rather than carry a gun.
This makes sense and Governor Perry will sign it.
Someone please explain to me why as a CHL holder I’m not allowed to carry in a school again?
The lock box added is BS.... Any weapon left unattended on school grounds is IMO BS.... Give the teacher firearms retention training, keep their identity from public or student knowledge etc ...
I say trash this bill and stick with what a lot of Texas school districts are already doing.... Let school employees aka , clerks, cooks, janitorial, teachers, etc ... with a CHL and additional training be authorized by school board and local Sheriff and PD.
I would add that volunteers with CHL’s should be allowed to perform same job. Lots of retired military, LEO/FLEA’s and knowledgable folks that can drink their morning coffee in the cafeteria, get some exercise in the weight room, surf free republic in the school library , change their oil in the auto mechanics shop , help the janitors, grounds keepers, librarian etc ...
Meet a board of school supervisors, lawyers and law enforcement with your résumé, pass a background and be briefed and understand you are not there to interact with the students at all as an authority. Not to break up arguments, snag rule violators, hall pass violators etc ...
Your lone assignment is to mitigate the damage from a armed attack on students by stopping the attack.
If these folks are worried about working directly with students when armed then make them use a revolver modified with the magna trigger system.
Not a lock box fan on this issue....
That could make the state religion .. S&W or Colt or Beretta.. now listen to the Left squeal.
what is more precious than the children?
So, if a teacher leaves the classroom, they would NOT have their gun "within immediate reach.
How is this going to work? Are there going to be boxes all over the school, all opened by the same key? What if someone loses the key? All those boxes are now unsecured.
Maybe the marshals will have to walk around with the lockbox hanging around their neck?
Lots of questions need to be answered.
Let union members of the Texas State Teachers Association be unarmed if they elect to do so on the record.
